In brief: No major differences

Different manufacturers often give the same drug a different brand name, as in this case.

In brief: Equivalent

These are essentially equivalent medications by different manufacturers.
Retin a (tretinoin) micro was the original version of this product.

In brief: Similar meds

Both have the same active ingredient tretinoin (or retin a).
The supatret preparation uses cross polymer microsphere to deliver the medicine. The gel containing microspheres may have a different texture from the pure gel. Both should be as effective.
